The Canadian Oxford Dictionary is a dictionary of Canadian English. First published by Oxford University Press Canada in 1998, it became a well-known reference for Canadian English. It also provides information on Canadian pronunciation and on Canadian spelling, which has features of both British and American spelling: colour, centre, and travelling, but tire, aluminum and realize.
The Canadian Oxford Dictionary was the runaway bestseller of 1998, spending over a year on the Globe and Mail's bestseller list and winning the Canadian Booksellers Association's Libris awards for Non-fiction Book of the Year and Specialty Book of the Year. The dictionary combines coverage of international English with information on English as it is particularly used in Canada. Definitions are presented so that the meaning most familiar to Canadians appears first and foremost.
This item:Canadian Oxford Dictionary by Katherine Barber Hardcover CDN$ 5. 5. Its inclusion of distinctively Canadian entries (yes, two-four, hoser, double-double, and Wawa are all here) launched a thousand lighthearted radio clips. Its tremendous utility as a reference work, however, wasn't touted on the morning shows. The Canadian Oxford Dictionary has been the standard reference work on English as it is spoken and written in Canada since it was first published in 1998.
Canadian-published dictionaries, therefore, are an essential part of defining a Canadian identity. Dictionaries used in English Canada have too often been either American or British, few of them showing Canadian terms or Canadian variant spellings and pronunciations. Historically, dictionaries published in Canada had little Canadian content.
